Fig. 6

Time response of Sch B treatment on hepatic steatosis. Experimental details were described in Fig. 1. Mice were orally administered with Sch B (1 g/kg). Control (untreated) animals received the vehicle only. After 12, 24, 48, 72, 96, and 120 h, mice were sacrificed, and livers were removed and frozen by liquid nitrogen. A representative microscopic picture of Oil Red O-stained liver tissue section for each group is shown in a, lipid positive staining area of each section was computed by Image Proplus 6.0 (b). Values given are the mean ± SEM, with n = 10. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 vs Control, using a one-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett’s multiple comparisons test, Student’s t-test or post-hoc analysis
